Pay in 12 months
This finance plan lets you spread the cost of the TDI-Tuning Box over a 12-month period. You pay interest on this finance; the amount of interest is available to view on the checkout page. This finance package is ideal if you want the lowest monthly payments, as it is the longest finance package we can offer through Klarna.

If you have found your tuning box but cannot afford the outright cost, you can spread the payments over 12 months. We have a representative example below to help you understand how this works. This representative example is for a BMW 420d. The TDI-Tuning Box costs £321.98 at the time of writing this article.

Pay in 3
Don't want to pay interest? What about if you aren't allowed to pay interest due to religious reasons? We have you covered. This flexible finance package offered by Klarna means 3 payments, no interest, no fees. Spread the cost of the TDI-Tuning Box over 3 monthly payments. This flexible finance package will be more expensive than the 12-month option, but it does mean it's paid off sooner. This is a very popular choice for our customers, as it means you don't pay a penny more than the tuning box is worth. We have provided an example of how this works below:
The questions below are specific to the 'Pay in 3' Finance package. For a list of full terms and conditions please visit the Klarna website. The terms and conditions are also avaliable to view before placing an order.
Will using Klarna affect my credit score?
No. Klarna might carry out a limited credit search on you at a credit reference agency. You may have heard the term a 'Soft credit check'. That is the type of credit check. It does not affect your credit score, or your chances of using credit in the future. You will be able to see it on your credit score, but nobody else will.
When will Klarna take my payments?
When you have purchased the TDI-Tuning Box, Klarna will put a freeze on the first of your three instalments. This means you are unable to spend this money on anything else. Once the TDI-Tuning Box has arrived with you, the first of your 3 payments will be taken. You will be able to see this on your card statement. The dates these payments are due will be sent to you by email, and you will be able to check them in the Klarna app. The second payment will be taken 30 days after the first payment, and the last one 60 days after the first payment. Klarna will charge your card automatically when your payments are due.
What happens if I cancel my order?
TDI-Tuning offer a 30 day money back guarantee, so long as you get in touch within 30 days of receiving your order, we will give you a full refund. No questions asked. If your next payment or due date for the cancelled order is approaching, you can pause billing in the Klarna App by clicking “Report a problem”. Once we have confirmed the cancellation or return, Klarna will update your payments accordingly as well as refund any amounts due. Refund processing times to you may vary and can take up to 14 days depending on the consumer’s bank.
